POWER. A BEAUTIFUL THING. UNLEASHED FOR THE FIRST TIME ON TRACK.
The McLaren 675LT is the lightest, most powerful and most track-focused model in the Super Series – and it has now been unleashed on track.
Production of the strictly limited model has now started at the state-of-the-art McLaren Production Centre in Woking, England, and the latest video from McLaren Automotive shows a 675LT dynamically on track for the first time. The 675LT combines light weight, optimised aerodynamics and a focus on driver engagement as one of the most revered names in modern-day GT racing – the Longtail – is resurrected. The track-focused dynamics are highlighted as the Napier Green model is demonstrated in each of its three handling and powertrain modes around on track, with its explosive performance supported by the soundtrack of a 3.8-litre V8 twin turbo engine producing 675PS (666bhp), emphasised by the new lightweight titanium crossover exhaust.
The McLaren 650S Can-Am honours the awe-inspiring and fearsome Can-Am race cars that first took to the track in 1966. Produced by McLaren Special Operations and limited to just 50 examples worldwide, this special-edition Super Series model features exclusive enhancements echoing the spirit of the spectacular Can-Am racers.
POWER – A BEAUTIFUL THING
Few people get to experience the thrill of real power. Power pushed to the very edge of reason until it rides that fine line between far enough and too far. Power that is so addictive, once tasted, it gets under your skin.
